What if I have nothing to write about/nothing new to say.
Audre Lorde said something to the extent of there are finite concepts to talk about, but infinite ways to talk about them. With so many people talking to each other, not just now, but over the course of all written history, it seems like there's nothing left to talk about. But each and every person who has lived and will live bring a new perspective. A million people have talked about the idea of love, yet they continue to talk about it in new ways. Your perspective is what makes your writing unique.
What skills does reading add to my daily life?
Reading is not just about consuming other people's thoughts. When you read, you are exposed to different ways people express themselves. Be it new vocabulary or new literary devices, reading expands the walls of how you convey your thoughts to the world. It is freeing when you can be more precise about your feelings because you know exactly what words to use.
Subject: Film and Theater
What is the importance of studying film and theatre?
Film and theatre are literature. Storytelling takes many forms and being able to not just consume entertainment, but actually think critically about it creates a more thoughtful audience. We can make critiques about the world we live in and pass on complex ideas and feelings to one another and generations after us when we value storytelling.
